FutureThames aims to initiate, facilitate, and support interdisciplinary and collaborative geoscience research in an attempt to understand the effects of environmental change in the Thames Basin.
The project endeavours to involve not only the diverse threads of geoscience within the BGS, but also the wider environmental communities, public bodies and industry to provide a holistic approach to predicting and mitigating the effects of environmental change.
Providing a relevant and focussed geoscience knowledge base and encouraging knowledge exchange between researchers and practitioners is essential if the impacts of environmental change in the Thames Basin are to be quantified.
More about our aims
FutureThames booklet The booklet highlights some of the key challenges affecting the Thames Basin and how geoscience might be able to help address. It is a useful starting point to encourage the use of geoscience as part of an integrated solution.
Our key research questions represent a wide range of challenges faced by BGS science teams in the Thames catchment. Collaboration and input from external stakeholders will ultimately provide a more realistic view of the challenges faced by the Thames region as a result of environmental change.
